Italian Serie A: Luca Toni welcomes Lukaku back to Inter Milan from Chelsea
Former Bayern Munich striker, Luca Toni, has welcomed Chelsea star, Romelu Lukaku, back to Inter Milan.
Toni believes Lukaku could see his wish to return to Italy fulfilled in the summer.
Lukaku had expressed his desire to return to Inter Milan in a controversial interview with Sky Italia in December last year.
The Belgium international joined Inter Milan in the summer of 2019 and led them to win the 2020/2021 Scudetto under Antonio Conte, scoring 24 goals in the Italian top-flight.
But the 29-year-old has struggled to make a great impact at Stamford Bridge, scoring just eight English Premier League goals.
Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb during the Charity Night Gala in Rome, Toni, a former Italy international, praised Lukaku.
Toni said: “A possible return of Lukaku to Inter? He’s had a bit of a hard time this year at Chelsea, but he's still a great champion.
“It will depend on Inzaghi. If Lukaku wants Inter, I think he is welcome.”
